Nuremberg: Endter, 1686. 200 x 163 mm. Vellum ca. 1686, head of spine and hinges repaired. Occasional light foxing, but fine. From the library of anthropologist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach (1752-1840), with booklabel bearing his autograph signature on the front pastedown and annotations and underlinings possibly his on at least 50 leaves. Modern bookplate of Gordon W. Jones, M.D. First Edition of Georg Abraham Mercklin?s considerably expanded version of van der Linden?s bibliography of medicine. First published in 1637, Van der Linden?s was the most complete medical bibliography of its time; it was also the most modern of early medical bibliographies, both in its contents and format. Mercklin (1664-1702) supplied corrections, biographical material on authors, and additions that included the innovative listing of articles from the publications of learned societies. This copy is from the library of Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, the founder of modern anthropology. He was the author of De generis humani varietate nativa (1775), in which he divided humanity into four races based on head shape, skin color and hair type; he later added a fifth race, and in the expanded third edition of De generis (1795) he introduced the famous terms ?Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American and Malayan? to describe the ?white, yellow, black, red and brown? varieties of mankind. Brodman, Development of Medical Bibliography, pp. 29-33; no. 14. Fulton, Great Medical Bibliographers, pp. 35-36.

Parentis Caspari Bartholini, Ad Circulationem Harvejanam, Et Vasa Lymphatica Quintum Renovata : Cum Iconibus novis, & Indicibus. - - An important early, very well illustrated edition of this standard anatomy by the Danish physician Thomas Bartholinus (1616-1680), who revised his father's work. With additional title engraved by G. Appelmans and an engraved portrait of the author pinx. by Ditmer and sculp. by G. Appelmans, and over 120 mostly full-page figures in the text and folding plates. - - The book is divided into 4 'libri' dealing with the lower torso, the thorax cavity, the head, and the limbs, joints and muscles, and 4 'libelli' on the veins, the arteries, the nerves, and the bones, cartilage and ligaments. It concludes with two letters from Johann Walaeus to the author on the subject of the circulation of blood and chyle within the body. The work is dedicated to King Christian V of Denmark. - - Four of the images from the "De ossibus" section in Bartholin's "Anatome" were adapted for use in the "Kaitai shinsho" (1774), the first Japanese anatomical treatise based directly on Western materials. The images are Tabula II, showing two views of the skull; Tabula VI, showing the upper and lower portions of the skull's interior; figures I - III of Tabula VII, illustrating types of vertebrae; and the folding plate of the skeleton opposite p. 748. - - In Wale's important letter to Bartholinus on the circulation of the blood, he gives a very early convincing proof of HARVAY's discovery according to the laws of hydrodynamic with a plate which shows a simple experiment on a dog to confirm Harvey?s doctrine. - - Thomas Bartholin of Copenhagen was at once the most prolific and the most widely read of the anatomists of the seventeenth century. - - Waller No. 713

        Journal du voiage du Chevalier Chardin en Perse et aux Indes Orientales, par la Mer Noire et par la Colchide: qui contient le voiage de Paris à Ispahan [Bound after:] Histoire de la Ville, Et de l'Estat de Genève

      chez Jean Wolters et Ysbrand Haring / Frans Halma 1686 / 1685, Amsterdam / Utrecht - 12mo (155 x 88 mm). 432pp., [7]. Full-page engraved portrait of Chardin above his heraldry bearing arms of two rosettes, chevron and bird, additional engraved title, 16 engraved plates, including two chapter headpieces (12 folding are maps, city panoramas or charts). The first English edition appeared in 1686, in London by Moses Pitt of 1686; Chardin having settled in England after his travels and was knighted there by Charles II. The title was reprinted twice in Amsterdam, in the original French, at different locations. First, at Abraham Wolfgang and then at Wolters and Haring as in this copy. Contemporary vellum, ms. title on spine with foldover edges, speckled edges; (light soiling and few small stains, few minor tears on engraved title, or marginal wear to plates). A very nice copy with plates in excellent shape. [Bound after:] SPON, Jacob (1647-1685). Histoire de la Ville, Et de l'Estat de Genève. Utrecht: Frans Halma, 1685. 522pp., [16 of table]. Woodcut printer’s device of Halma with motto "Vivitur ingenio" (one lives on in spirit) to title, additional engraved title, 6 plates of which 3 are folding among which the view of the Geneva region with placenames highlighted in yellow, woodcut headpieces and decorative initials; (one small fold-tear to Geneva plate). Formerly in the collection of famed bibliophile Henri Burton of Geneva, his morocco bookplate neatly to front endpaper. French sammelband of the ‘Travels of Sir Jean Chardin;’ one of the finest works of early Western scholarship on Persia and India, and Spon’s ‘History of Geneva,’ from the collection of Henri Burton. A great deal of European travel writing details the history of Europe’s relationship to the Orient, a place highly exoticized by western observers. Jean Chardin was a trader and the son of a jeweler who first went to the Levant in 1665 to purchase gems. He made a second journey in 1671 in the company of the artist Guillaume Grelot whom he met in Istanbul, and whose drawings inspired the engravings in the present work. This edition comprises the first volume of the author’s manuscript dealing with the period 1671-1673, and is all that was published until 1711. His work is divided into four parts: the first, recounts his journey from Paris to Ispahan (1671-77), the second describes Persia and Ispahan, the third the ruins of Persepolis and the fourth gives a history of Persia, based on Persian writers. /// Spon (1647-1685) was a doctor and pioneering archaeologist of Greek antiquities. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, he fled France for Switzerland, dying not long after in Geneva. His history of Geneva, first published in 1680, was translated into English in 1687. Chardin, an experienced trader, is in a position to give detailed accounts of trade-routes, prices, articles bought and sold, customs problems and so on, whereas Spon is primarily interested in Antiquity, concentrating on giving the exact wording of inscriptions, illustrations of medals and ancient buildings, and the comparison of towns and landscapes with the descriptions which appear in Classical texts. A fine sammelband, neat and sturdy, contained two important travel texts printed within just one year of each other. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      In - folio piccolo. Legatura coeva in pelle, solida ma alquanto usata. Antiporta allegorica, 12 tavole f.t. inc. in rame. con figure esoteriche, e 4 (di 5) tavole f.t. con figure geometriche. (6), 240, (4) pp.; lieve ossidazione della carta. Seconda tiratura della prima edizione: rispetto alla prima tiratura (Groningen, Pieman, 1686), sono state cambiate solo alcune parole del titolo. Raro trattato scritto in forma di dialogo tra due persone (forse i figli dell?autore, un magistrato olandese di Groeningen appassionato di alchimia) le quali, salendo i dieci gradini della ?scala della sapienza?, discutono di questioni mistico - alchemiche. L?opera fu ristampata nel 1693 a Colonia col titolo Thrésor de la Philosophie des Anciens. Duveen 287. Cf. Caillet 2417. Verginelli Rota 74 (edizione del 1693): «L?opera è originale e interessante. Molto rara e perciò poco nota anche agli specialisti a ai repertori». Second issue of the first edition of a very rare work on alchemy. "The fact that the title leaf bears a different watermark from the rest of the book suggests that it is a cancelled leaf, the whole being simply a reissue of unsold sheets of the 1686 edition together with two leaves of errata. In other words this is not a new edition but the second issue of the first edition" (Mellon Coll. 142). With an engr. allegorical frontispiece, 13 engr. plates with allegorical illustrations, and 4 (of 5) engr. plates with geometrical figures. Some light browning and occasional foxing.

        King James New Testament, Book of Common Prayer & Devotional

      1686/1687, 8vo 7.25" x 5" x 2.25", Very Good, rare- not listed in Herbert,A LOVELY EXAMPLE OF A LATE ENGLISH RESTORATION PERIOD WORK WITH AN AMAZING FINE BINDING, RULED WITH RED LINES THROUGHOUT INDICATING ORIGINAL OWNERSHIP BY NOBILITY, :Oxford University Press has a rich history which can be traced back to the earliest days of printing. The first book was printed in Oxford in 1478, just two years after Caxton set up the first printing press in England. The University was involved with several printers in Oxford over the next century, although there was no formal university press. In 1586 the University of Oxford's right to print books was recognized in a decree from the Star Chamber. This was enhanced in the Great Charter secured by Archbishop Laud from King Charles I, which entitled the University to print 'all manner of books'. Delegates were first appointed by the University to oversee this process in 1633. Minutes of their deliberations are recorded dating back to 1668. The structure of Oxford University Press (OUP) as it exists today began to develop in a recognizable form from that time. The University also established its right to print the King James Authorized Version of the Bible in the seventeenth century. This Bible Privilege formed the basis of OUP's publishing activities throughout the next two centuries. From the late 1800s OUP began to expand significantly, opening the first overseas OUP office in New York in 1896. Other international branches followed, including Canada (1904), Australia (1908), India (1912), Southern Africa (1914). Today OUP has offices in 50 countries, and is the largest university press in the world.COLLATION AND CONDITION :FRONTISPIECE, 1 page, full page engraving of King Charles 2 by F.H.

Bohn's writings show him to have been "an expert on the then new anatomical and physiological discoveries . . . one of the innovators in physiology who completely forsook the Galenic tradition" (DSB). In his Circulus anatomico-physiologicus, dedicated to Malpighi, Bohn stated that the reflex action was an entirely material and mechanical phenomenon, and showed that the nerves do not contain a "nerve juice." The DSB gives 1680 as the date of Bohn's work, probably in error, as OCLC cites no edition printed in that year.

        Canary islands "Insula Canariæ alias Fortuniæ dictæ

      Africa: Amsterdam Wolfgangh, Waesbergen, Boom. Someren en Goethals 1686. Copper engraved map of the Canary Islands, from Olfert Dapper's "Description de l'Afrique," the first edition in French; black and white, verso blank. Decorative title cartouche to upper right; compass rose and sailing ships to sea. The map is from the second part of Dapper's work "Description des iIes de l'Afrique." Dark impression; light toning; occasional spotting to blank margins; old ink number to upper margin. Olfert Dapper (1639-1689) was a Dutch physician and scholar devoted to historical and geographical studies. He produced several finely illustrated volumes describing travels in Africa, Asia, Asia Minor, the Middle East, drawing upon the most reliable eye-witness accounts as well as his own library of travel books. His works were authoritative and very popular, and especially noteworthy for their excellent illustrations and maps. First edition in French of Dapper's"Description de l'Afrique, contenant Les Noms, la Situation & les Confins de toutes ses Parties, leurs Rivières, leurs Villes & leurs Habitations, leurs Plantes & leurs Animaux ; les Moeurs, les Coûtumes, la Langue, les Richesses, la Religion & le Gouvernement de ses Peuples. Avec Des Cartes des Etats, des Provinces & des Villes, & des Figures en Taille-douce, qui représentent les habits & les principales Ceremonies des Habitans, les Plantes & les Animaux les moins connus. Traduite du Flamand "originally published in Dutch in 1668 as "Naukeurige Beschrijvingen der Afrikaensche gewesten" & "Naukeurige beschrijvinge der Afrikaensche Eylanden " Dapper's Description of Africa: "covers the entire continent - the Islamic north, from Morocco to Egypt, Abyssinia, central and southern Africa, and Madagascar, Malta, the Canaries and other islands of the African coast" (Alastair Hamilton, Europe and the Arab World, page 26). Although he had never visited Africa, Dapper's book is still of considerable value, because he made use not only of published sources (especially De Marees), but also of manuscripts which have now been; lost he relied very heavily on records of the Dutch West India Company, especially a collection made by Samuel Bloomaerts, one of its officials. His work became well-known, and is still a key text for Africanists. It was translated into English by John Ogilby and published in 1670, when a German translation was also published. There was a second Dutch edition in 1676 and the first French translation was published ten years later. Mendelssohn I, p.413. Cox I, p. 361; Gay 219. Africa Canary Islands

        Plate 96, Vue du paysage et de la Maison Royale de St. Cir

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Plate 96, Vue du paysage et de la Maison Royale de St. Cir, from the late 18th century measures 19.75” x 26.75” and is in excellent condition with light foxing in the margins. This engraving illustrates an expansive view of the French countryside around what is now known as Saint-Cyr-l'École. In 1686, King Louis XIV established a school here for young impoverished women from noble families, at the request of Madame de Maintenon the morganatic second wife of the king. Noblemen and women are seen sitting and standing in the clearing, interacting and enjoying the views below. The large school with the blue roof and bell tower is seen in the distance with the town and surrounding areas as well. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles . Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris , was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles , along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility, by requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies.
